On March 15th, AIDAperla will sail into the city of Rotterdam. The sister ship of AIDAprima was actually baptised only recently in Palma de Mallorca, on June 30th, 2017. She is 300 metres long, 38 metres wide and is capable of welcoming about 3300 cruise passengers. AIDAperla is a magnificent, state-of-the-art ship that comes with the latest and energy-efficient Azipod drive systems, to significantly push down fuel consumption levels. She has been equipped with an Air Lubrication System by none other than Mitsubishi. This technology allows her to float forward on a carpet of air bubbles.
Until now, AIDAperla has been offering Mediterranean Sea Cruises from Mallorca (she was in Cádiz on March 6th). Mallorca has been the departure point, however passengers were also given the opportunity to board in Barcelona. On March 15th, AIDAperla will be right here in Rotterdam, sailing her weekly Metropolitan Route from March 16th until November: Hamburg, Southampton, Le Havre, Zeebrugge, Rotterdam (for this cruise, passengers may also board in Rotterdam).
